Aquaboom 4th of July Parade

We had the distinct pleasure of having a float in the 49th Annual July 4th Aquaboom Celebration. The club decorated the float the day before at members Jim and Brenda's home, then showed up for the parade early the next morning. The Land Parade starts and ends early because Texas on July 4th is HOT, y'all. 

Club members rode the float, held signs, threw candy and shouted patriotic slogans. Don played patriotic songs on the guitar. America The Beautiful was a crowd favorite, with some well-appreciated interludes of ZZTop's 'La Grange' and SRV's 'Pride and Joy'.

We felt a real connection with the community and plan on doing this again next year.
